can agree on george bush deserves no credit for that war. you would never know it from yesterday's white house briefing. i mean jay carney was asked about the administration's reactions to the anniversary. he said, we are glad the war is over, we salute our men and women in the military. a reporter from fox says well, if the iraqi people are better off because saddam hussein is no longer there, you have to give george bush some credit. i almost fell off of my chair. jay carney said, of course we give george bush some credit. no we don't. no we don't. everything george bush said about the reason for starting that war turned out to be a big, fat law. no weapons of mass destruction, no nukes, no navy no air force, no justification for war. yes, our men and women in the military did a good job in iraq. but george bush gets no credit for starting that war in the first place. hey, see you right back here tomorrow. have a good one. >> this is "the bill press show." ♪ theme ♪ >> well, it's day three of the hostage negotiation known as he will's park sit
today in president bush's book "decision points" he says he wished he had done immigration before social security, because he thinks there would have been bipartisan support for it before he tried. but it failed mostly because harry reid called a cloture vote. over, some of the issues take a long time to marinate. that that as people thought it through, i think they realize it's not having a good comprehensive immigration policy is hurting us economically and it's not the right thing to do. it's time to solve it. i admire everyone for coming to the table. but i want to make a point. what rand paul is saying is contrast to gang of eight. his idea is security first, legalization and then citizenship. gang of eight put forward legalization, security and then citizenship. that seems like you could find a compromise, but that is a big leap between security and legalization piece and flipping them. >> andrea: what do you think, eric? >> eric: rand paul opened up a can of whoop-ass on the hill and they were flooded with calls say dog you care to weigh in on rand paul's idea? he threw people for
was wrong. he was wrong then and now. of course deficits matter, but any one of you who supported the bush plans has no right to speak. i helped bill clinton balance the budget and build a surplus. why? because we had good economic times. in good economic times, you pay down the deficit, but reagan and bush did not, and in bad you have to stimulate in the near term, as thank god president obama is doing. we democrats will balance the budget once again. >> paul, which is more important to america's pursuit of happiness -- which is more dangerous, excuse me, than a 357 magnum -- >> in my home you would find 17 guns and no cans of soda pop. i have the right wing position on the giant drink soda thing. i do not like the idea, and i think bloomberg is a fine man, but i do not like government telling us what size to buy today. this one, i am with tucker and most of you. i have the right wing position on gun safety. i have the same position as ronald reagan, who was for a waiting period before you buy a gun. i have the same position as the president of the nra before he flip-flopped in the last f
:16:00 p.m. eastern, president bush addressed the nation from the oval office. >> my fellow citizens. at this hour, american coalition forces are in the early stage of military operations to disarm iraq, free its people and defend the world from great danger. >> bret: since that time, 1.5 million american troops served inside iraq. nearly 4 ,500 were killed there. more than 32,000 american troops were wounded in iraq. more than 100 iraqis died in the fighting. more than a year after american troops left iraq is still bloody battlefield. today, as we said, series of apparently coordinated bombings. death toll is 65. could still rise. david is an international lawyer with the d.c. firm patton boggs and used to be head of the rule of law for the state department inside baghdad. he returned there this week to work on investment project and really spent the day trying to stay safe. he joins us now by phone live in baghdad after leaving his hotel due to the danger of the bombing attacks. dave, thank you for joining us. what can you tell us about today? >> thanks, bret. the ten-year anniver
's talking points memo. it was 10 years ago that president bush launched an attack on iraq. >> operation iraqi freedom has begun and the pentagon says saddam hussein's days are numbered. i'm shepard smith. this is the fox report on fox news channel and tonight on fox stations from coast to coast. bombs and crews mistles rained down on baghdad for a second night in a row. and saddam's main presidential palace taking a direct hit. saddamecess saddam hussein's family home got hit as well. >> bill: that marked eight long years of conflict in iraq. almost 4500 americans dead. more than 32,000 wounded. almost a trillion dollars spent. was it worth it? many liberals say no. some conservatives say yes. the "wall street journal" today supporting the war in iraq on its editorial page. of course, the "new york times" thinks it was foolish. no matter what you think. the iraq war has changed america. we now have a 17 trillion-dollar debt. and obviously iraq contributed to that we also have thousands of wounded warriors. the country must take care of. and we have an ideological battle over how to deal
attacked president bush mercilessly at one point said he was the worst president since herbert hoover, said that the surge was the worst blunder since the vietnam war which is nonsense and was very anti-his own party and people. people don't forget that. >> jon: first of all, bush was the worst president since herbert hoover. [cheers and applause] and second -- -- second, you (bleep) hated him. haaaated him. hated. and third blocking a secretary of defense nominee that has nothing to do with your current rediscovered moral outrage at american deaths overseas whilst copping to maybe a little payback is the antithesis of your campaign slogan so pardon me, sir, but perhaps it needs an update. [cheers and applause] [cheers and applause] >> jon: welcome back. as you know, america is like a boy band, yes. [ laughter ] that is the premises we are asserting. each of our 50 state has a distinct personality. we've got the cute one. [ laughter ] we've got the rebel, rides a harley with no helmet.

, that it was dysfunctional, a reprisal of liberals and what they have seen as excessive conservativism in the bush era and back and forth, and a dysfunctional agency. so there are other people who are less controversial and as i say would share mr. perez's views. and picking perez is sort of like what they did with chuck hagel. they could have found someone who shared chuck hagel's point ever view who wouldn't have been as controversial as mr. hagel. >> megyn: and the ig's report found mr. perez, that he misled investigators on the new black panther case that it was not intentional, that he should have done his homework, but not that he knowingly lied. that was the ig conclusion. however, they did back up the allegation that there is a racial hostility when it comes to enforces the civil rights laws equally where the defendant in the case is black and the victim in the case is white, that there's a racial hostility within the doj when it comes to those cases and that in fact that exists under mr. perez's civil rights division, as it did prior in the bush administration. is it not less controversial th

guided president bush in his second term victory, but in reality karl rove and george bush were architects a policy disasters that led to president bush been mired in 30% approval ratings for much of his second term. those ratings hurt republican and conservative brands and brought us president barack obama, and "obamacare." it is kind of the opposite of a permanent republican majority, you might say. of course, there is a way for us to come together and unite for a common purpose. conservatives will not be bullied into throwing -- in the 2010, president obama and his policies showed us that he was a unifying force for conservatives. we must make obama that again in 2014. friends, president obama in his second inaugural address all but declared war on the conservative movement. it took him four years, but finally the real barack obama, the one we all knew, exposed himself as an unabashedly liberal ideologue all to see. obamaderate myth that portrayed, aided openly by his friends in the mainstream media, that he was a transformational leader who would transcend politics is a comp

. george bush doubled the debt and extent of the military greatly. we need to cut the military. we need to raise taxes to pay for that. i would like to point out to the congressman the united states constitution actually states that the congress has the power to raise taxes. the very first thing it gives for that purpose is to pay the .ebt for the united states i wish republicans would actually start upholding the constitution. host: you made your point. let's get a response. guest: you are right, we need to pay our debt. is too much? taxes is 50% of what one makes too much? i would suggest that it is. that is basically where we are right now for many individuals in this country. we believe that the way you get this economy rolling again so that jobs can be created and we we can get people back to work ,s -- get people back to work still pushing eight percent unemployment. we need to make certain that we can get the economy rolling. one of the ways to do that is the provost tax policy, bring taxes down so people can spend their money and invest and spend the way they see fit, not the wa
, this is -- part of her problem was also that she is old news in the sense that clintons and bushes alike, just ask jeb bush, these are names that people have been talking about for over 20 years. and there's a real sense out there on both sides of the aisle that it's time for a change. i also think, look, historically the idea that a presidential, that a party can hold on to the white house for three terms in a row is very, very rare, it's very difficult, and the idea that hillary clinton is the woman who can do that i find a little unlikely. i don't think barack obama's popularity transfers to her. if you watch that "60 minutes" interview with hillary clinton and barack obama, you could see why barack obama is more popular than hillary clinton as a politician, because he's a much more dynamic and engaging personality, and hillary just did not seem like she was a particularly interesting person or exciting person to listen to or follow. jon: "the washington post" is out with a poll on gay marriage that is kind of an outlier. the fox news poll and other polls taken til now have said the country is

, it is fascinating. i've been here in the past with president clinton, with president george w. bush, now president obama. in the past the israeli-palestinian conflict is always at the top of the agenda but given the event in this complicated neighborhood that is now more complicated and confused than ever, the israeli-palestinian conflict is down on the list. the president wants to share information and get information from his israeli counterparts about what's going on in syria. did the government in syria use chemical weapons against its own people. that's a big question. obviously the nuclear showdown with iran. the presidentister wants assurance if that diplomacy doesn't bear fruit that the president of the united states is prepared to put the military option on the table. and, yes, the president did say he wants to have peace in the holy land and he will make that a priority. no accident the president says that this is the first international trip of his second term. >> this is no accident. across this region, the winds of change bring both promise and peril. so i see this visit as an opportu

. guest: what she is saying is she does not want amnesty, and under president bush he had a strong amnesty plan and i said i would not back it. total amnesty like the one president reagan did will cause a lot of problems here and i think we need the workers. obviously, a lot of people are working, and if they are paying their taxes, anger goes down. if they are getting protections that workers receive who are working here legally, then there is anger. i would separate the people who are here into two categories. one would be the green card pipeline, meaning you stay on that avenue, and the workers would be the red card avenue. you cannot jump between the green and the red pipelines. if you choose to be a worker, you processed through the border likely, you can go to the employer and a -- and they can't see that you are legal. right now they cannot tell if they have a legitimate green card. that is the way i would move forward. broad amnesty is something i find it difficult. nnie, your thoughts? caller: we have laws that we do not follow, and you are trying to force us to go with your decis
, under the bush administration, they had this idea to take the postal service and the postal service alone and no other agency in federal government, and make them prepay their retirement systems 75 years into the future. let me give you an example of what that means that means they're prepaying the pension for someone who is not born today, for their retirement a half century down the road. no oragency, no private company would do that. but we are requiring the postal service. so when you hear the postal service is losing money, almost every single dollar of those losses is due to the prepayment of this unusual requirement that only the postal service has to pay. so what happens, the response? clearly, i think this is an attempt to try to privatize the system. to take away a system that i think so many people have relied on for so many years in this country. but this is what we see happening system of recently, we saw there was a move to go from six-day delivery to five-day delivery. when you start to cut back on delivery, it has a real ramification on people, on what they're going
